wn share of beauty that satisfies the weariness of visitors. When going to Palawan, Nagtabon might be not on your list of must-see destinations, but a visit to the beach is still a good worthwhile experience.

For many visitors of Nagtabon Beach, they sometimes called the beach as "virgin beach". No commercial shops, resort cottages and facilities, and even tourists. But the secluded ambiance of the beach makes up for its bare surroundings.

The best time to go to Nagtabon Beach is around March to September. Otherwise, the waves get really wild and sweep you back and forth the shore, leaving you with little control.

    While you are in Puerto Princesa and looking for more places to explore? Then an unspoiled beach is waiting for you and that is NAGTABON BEACH!

    On my first trip to Puerto Princesa, the trip to Nagtabon beach was a great addition to our itinerary.
